    What are the common pitfalls that you have seen for new testers?


    For new testers the common pitfalls that I have seen are:

    – Start to test without a good understanding of the requirements.
    – Not to cover a complete range of scenarios from a user perspective.
    – Difficulty to share steps to reproduce issues with developers.
    – Duplicate efforts on certain issues that has not been implemented yet.
    – Don’t have automated tests in place for features that were already tested.
    – etc.

    I did some of them myself when I was starting as a tester!


    Adding to the list…

    Not being able to dig further into an issue to isolate a problem
    Not understanding the importance of documentation
    Dealing with rejected defects
    Unable to get your point across to the developers
